10th Official Tournament Fundraiser Wrap-Up

Posted in Flash Flash Revolution on April 26th, 2014

Over the past week, the Flash Flash Revolution community has come together to help raise an absolutely overwhelming $2,183.25 USD in donations for the 10th Official Tournament fundraiser! After 6 years, officially sanctioned prize pools will be making a grand return – and it will be greater than all previous tournaments combined, with a total tournament cash prize pool of $1,250 USD!

107 keysmashers have generously contributed to the event, averaging an incredible $19.95/donation (only 107 easy payments of $19.95)! Brass “All Skill” Token recipients are encouraged to post their spoils in the “Look what came in the mail” thread or the Fundraiser discussion thread!

“We did it! Our vision will soon come into fruition!” PrawnSkunk exclaimed, elated with the success of his part in the project. In reality however, there was still much to be done. It was all out of his hands though, but he had great faith in the other team members. “We project his speed comprehension and execution to be over 750 BPM – it’s unimaginable!” foxfire667 added, still in disbelief that the final phase was so close. The first phase was completed a mere month ago, after an agonizing 10 months of excruciating labor, and another 3 weeks of testing. From the surface, one might call Synthlight’s plan nothing more than the ramblings of a deranged old man. However, those part of the Super Secret FFR Genetics Team knew it was a challenge worth accepting. Through endless research and countless modifications to the human genome, PrawnSkunk was finally able to successfully restep the sequence to create the ultimate keysmasher.

With the funds raised from the “10th Official Tournament” fundraiser, many limiting factors were alleviated, and the odds were beginning to stack in their favor. After a few weeks past, all of the necessary components were shipped to the lab, and were ready to incubate the insemination mechanically. The entirety of the FFR Genetics Team were readily awaiting the final phase – the step out of calculated simulation, and into reality. Every diagnostic instrument was meticulously placed and checked to ensure no faults would emerge. Now the only step remaining was the press of a button, and the activation key from Synthlight himself. Everyone in the room seemed anxious, as although Synthlight was running the operation, this would be the first time he was showing himself at the laboratory in person.

Despite the expectations of some, Synth’s entrance was rather uneventful. After a quick briefing, Synthlight lifted his hand to the terminal and turned his key. With the lab still in tact, and the readings still positive, the FFR Genetics Team were overcome with excitement. The machines seemed to be operating perfectly so far! In a few years, a new era of arrow smashing might actually begin! Synthlight approached the incubation chamber, gazing upon his creation affectionately. He spoke to it softly. “First person to post on your wall; I just want to welcome you to the insanity we call life. You are going to be Perfect, I can tell!” Synthlight, having graced the team with a decades’ worth of his presence, climbs into his FFRmobile and returns to his secret lair.

Somewhere deep in the heart of America, Synthlight sat back in his swivel chair, raised a pint of liquid freedom to his lips and and muttered softly under his breath,


Thank you to everyone in the community for your support! We wish you the best of luck in the 10th Official Tournament this summer.

  21. You should do qualifiers for the 10th Official Tournament. That would help clean up the inactive players and do placements afterward. /just a suggestion

  22. Qualifiers don’t work. I’ve already mentioned this in the past. People who know they are borderline can intentionally do poorly to manipulate divisional placements. If the official tournaments were live, single-divisional tournaments where seeding could be done in a single attempt, it would be different.

  23. I did it first.

  24. cool

  25. so does this mean that dossars not winning D7 this year

  26. 107 donations. Can you imagine, and follow me here, if all 1,883,982 members donated? I know several hundreds, hell thousands are alts, but still. A $5 donation from every legitimate account would be insane.

  27. This was clearly photoshopped.

  28. is Synthlight dead? someone told me he died.

  29. So, the prize is real money? or just FFR credits? Just asking, not greedy for money.

  30. “…a total tournament cash prize pool of $1,250 USD!”

  31. @Devilchilly it’s real money and i think on top of credits as well probably

  32. holy frick that’s a lot of $$

  33. Where can I sign up for this? Sorry I’m a bit out of the loop.
